The Jaeger-LeCoultre Manufacture

We were born in La Vallée de Joux in the Swiss mountains in 1833.
Since day one, each watch, from the calibre to the case, is designed, made and assembled in our Manufacture by our master watchmakers. It demands inventiveness, determination, hard work and courage. How long it takes is irrelevant. What matters is how long it will last. This is the maker spirit.
